Boots, Bats and Boobs…The Fatal Beauties of Sebastia Boada
Sean sent me a couple of illustrators to check out for today’s art feature, and it took only one look at Sebastia Boada‘s illustrations for me to start writing this post. I mean, who can resist the combination of fantasy, horror, occult and erotica that Boada has going on? In his world, a powerful woman only needs a pair of thigh-high stilettos (I sense a fetish…) to dominate and destroy. He creates macabre scenes with an intense amount of movement and action, and manages to capture that bodice-ripper feel, but make his female characters strong actors, rather than subservient to masculinity (except for that Pan/Satan one, which I dig anyway). It’s a tit fest, that’s for sure, and it’s one that everyone can enjoy…so check out this gallery of Boada’s work from the 60s, 70s and 80s below (and maybe make sure your boss isn’t looking over your shoulder), and if you dig them, pick up a copy of Fatal Beauty: The Boada Sketchbook Vol. 1 here!
